CRYING, 'THALASSUS!', by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Then, as now, let it be the drawl of rivers
Last Line: "is in my blood and blinds me with desire!"
Subject(s): Rivers


Then, as now, let it be the drawl of rivers
Parleying broken silver that compels
With voice whose beauty burdens and delivers
My dust to struggle like a stir of bells.
To rally wild, remembering the streams
Of all the earth, rise valiantly, respond
Some night when poised on swarthy silence dreams
The moon, a great cool aqueous diamond!

Oh! let desire go forth unpiloted
And passionate to meet the glowing flood,
Crying, "Thalassus is no longer dead:
His fire trembles blindly in my blood!"
Crying, "Thalassus is not dead, his fire
Is in my blood and blinds me with desire!"
